The Unbearable Banishment: Taking leave of my senses

Taking leave of my senses

Yesterday, the guys and gals who occupy the lunatic fringe of the Republican party were doing the happy pee-pee dance because they won two gubernatorial elections. They’re convinced that it’s a new dawn for conservativism. If that’s true, I hope it’s a sensible brand that I can participate in and not the vitriolic hate-spewing kind that seems so popular these days. Boy, those guys are sore losers and not very gracious winners.

Then I heard Paris Hilton interviewed on Jimmy Kimmel’s show. She’s a vapid narcissist and yet she is admired by young girls. They all want to be like her.

This morning I see in the papers that the New York Yankee$, a group of blood-sucking slugs and carpetbaggers, just won the World Series. Another big eff-ewww to small-market baseball.

I’m leaving for Washington D.C. tomorrow to visit relatives. When I get back, this mess had better be cleaned up or someone is going to suffer a double-salvo of sarcastic wit. It won’t be pleasant so get on it.

You used the c-word when talking about the Yankees?!!! There is no worse insult than carpetbagger if you are from south of the Mason-Dixon Line.

Cat: I used that c-word out of respect for the women who visit this site. I wanted to use a different one.

Washington DC??? Pictures please!

Also Paris Hilton ... she's famous for making a sex tape. I can't believe that anyone looks up to her.

I didn't even know the Yankees won the World Series until just now, when I read your post. Proof that I avoid the news.

jeter and a-rod wouldn't go out of their way to spit on a fan unless their was a paycheck in it for them!

screw the yankees! overpaid douchebags! every damn one of them!

in answer to your last question. i do have a cell phone. i only got it when i started getting serious with my future wife. when the nyc blackout hit and i couldn't communicate with her i finally broke down and gave in and got one, even though if i had one in that particular situation it would have been useless!

i have t-mobile and i hate them too. dropped calls and dead zones galore!

i voted for jimmy mcmillan for mayor. he ran under the RENT IS TOO DAMN HIGH!" party. (yes it's his own made up party but it's a cause i could get behind!) i personally am bothered by the fact that bloomberg essentially bullied and bought his way back into office but i guess that's just business as usual for politics.

Daisy: I don't enjoy writing posts like this but my buttons were pushed this week.

Sid: Paris is a horrible person, but boy, can she...oh...never mind.

Leah: I have imposed a media blackout on myself to avoid further blow-up like this. It's a good thing I'm leaving town for the weekend.

Jason: You must be pleased, then, that Bloomberg's margin of victory was much more narrow than they thought it would be. And the new Yankee Stadium is a big "fuck you" to the average fan. Serves 'em right.

Paris Hilton... she alone sets the whole American image back by at least 50 years. I swear, if I hear just one more mention of the most over used word in the Hilton vocabulary "Awesome"...grrrr

and while they're at it, what about this whole Middle East situation? Surely that's gone on long enough?

Will you go see the Duchamp exhibition while you're in Washington DC?

Watching American politics from a distance is like watching a bad reality TV program. Survivor - District of Columbia.
